The animated hit "Monsters, Inc.," featuring the voices of John Goodman and Billy Crystal and nominated for four Oscars, is available on a two-disc DVD and a VHS tape from Walt Disney Home Entertainment.

"Monsters, Inc.," a heart-warming comedy and one of the highest-grossing animated films ever made, is a product of Disney Home Entertainment and Pixar Animation Studios, the people who used computer-animation to bring "Toy Story" and "A Bug's Life" to the screen.

Both the VHS ($24.99) and the DVD ($29.99) contain the new short "Mike's New Car"; funny outtakes, including "Company Play," a musical performance by the film's characters; a music featurette with Crystal and Goodman performing "If I Didn't Have You"; and a Oscar-nominated Pixar short film, "For the Birds."

The DVD contains many extras and engaging interactive bonus features including one that enables viewers to have a day on the job at "Monster World" and a funny employee handbook to guide the viewer through the wacky history of that workplace.

Also included are a "Storytime--Welcome to Monstropolis" program; a new storybook of monster adventures, "Boo's Door Game"; and filmmakers' commentaries.

In addition, the DVD offers an exclusive look at the Disney/Pixar upcoming feature film "Finding Nemo."
